“He's always there flying to the ball,” North's Corbin Cleveland said. “He's probably the toughest guy on the team. He may not be as fast as other people but he plays fast.”
Even though football's big in his family, Uhles could've been a baseball player.
His dad played baseball in college, and Uhles played the sport until he decided after his sophomore year to concentrate solely on football.
“There's just something about the brotherhood and the camaraderie we have with all these guys,” Uhles said. “You don't really know until you're a part of it.
“In football, you can put in the work by yourself but unless you play as one unit, you don't get the job done and you work all week for one game and when that one game's there, you've got to show up. There's not another game the next day.”
Now, Uhles gets to close his high school career playing for a state title.
“It's pretty special,” he said. “I'm going to be crying win, lose or tie. I always wanted to know when my last practice was and not go out thinking, ‘What could I have done to keep us playing longer?'”
